Nice pic Newfie. I think that this is the caterpillar of the Vapourer Moth. They feed on many deciduous trees and can be a serious pest.

Thanks, guys.
Toto, as I took this off my sunflower, I considered squishing it but I heard you saying, "too bad..that would have probably turned into a beautiful butterfly or moth..." so I let it live and just put it on my patio to scurry off......
Next time I will be following my instincts. lol. I haven't seen it before so hopefully it won't be problematic.

There has to be more than one to cause a problem. Please don't squish things unless you know for sure that they are a serious pest. Everything has the right to life.
